Our bodies have a natural ability to eliminate the harmful toxins. However, too much toxins enter our bodies, so our bodies cannot perform their function in the right way. Severe health problems appear when our organs become overloaded.
The two types of toxins that are found in the body are water-soluble and fat-soluble toxins. The blood stream and the kidneys eliminate the water-soluble toxins. However, the second type of toxins is troublesome.

The most common toxins of the second type are environmental chemicals, plastics, heavy metals, pollutants, pesticides, food additives and preservatives. The body can eliminate these toxins only when the convert into water-soluble toxins.

These toxins are converted into water-soluble toxins by the liver. However, when the liver is not able to function properly these toxins spread into the brain, the fatty tissues and the blood stream. The toxins may remain in these cells for several years and eventually they will harm the organism.

To prevent the accumulation of fat-soluble toxins in the body’s tissues detoxify your body regularly, regulate the stress levels and pay attention to your digestive tract.

How does this function

The toxic and nutritional fats from your meal go into the small intestine. The liver’s bile emulsifies them. Lacteals or mucus membranes absorb the nutritional fats in the gut.

The toxic fat are processed and eliminated in the liver. However, when the liver is not able to process and eliminate all of the toxins they are stored into the body.

One of the most important parts of the human body

The gut associated lymphatic tissue is the beginning of the lymphatic system. This is one of the most important parts of the body and is located around the intestinal tract. Meanwhile, in the intestines both the nutritional and toxic fats are absorbed since the liver is not able to process and eliminate all of the harmful fats. This is why the mucus membranes of the inner intestinal wall must function properly. There should be no blockage in a quarter inch of the outer gut.

The lymphatic system that is around the intestines takes the absorbed fats to the liver where they should undergo a process of separation. The good fats create cholesterol and are prepared for elimination. If the lymphatic system is blocked, this entire process will not happen.

If the gut associated lymphatic system is blocked the lymphatic system is compromised and various health problems occur. These problems are: elimination troubles, stiff joints, excess abdominal fat, headaches, bloating, hypersensitivity, skin irritation, tenderness, itchy sensation, swollen limbs and swollen breasts especially in women during the menstrual cycle.


Stress and unhealthy diet can seriously affect your health especially the bowel movement and the elimination of toxins. Stress can dry out the mucus membranes in the intestines which can cause constipation and production of reactive mucus. Excess mucus will make the stool normal, yet this does not mean that you are healthy. You will also be bloated and the stool may be loose. If you notice mucus in the stool, you have to do something. If the problem is not solved the fat toxins will not be eliminated.

This will affect the health of your intestines and the normal immune response. The toxins will reach the liver again eventually. Stress in not the only factor that causes this problem. Acidic pH levels, food additives, carbonated drinks, processed foods and coffee can also contribute to this health issue.

The toxic fats’ pathway

To maintain optimal health your body needs optimal flow of the bile. Bile is the immune system responder in the digestive tract and it destroys the fats. It also collects the chemicals that are harmful to your health. You need to consume a rich-in-fiber diet to eliminate the bile and the fats from your body. If you don’t consume foods rich in bile, most of the bile returns to the liver and goes through a process of recycling. The return of the bile overwhelms the liver and makes it unable to process the fats that are toxic.

With time the bile becomes sludgy and the liver becomes congested. In this case, your body is not able to process heavy foods such as fatty meals or hamburgers. The thick bile cannot buffer the stomach acids and usually goes into the small intestines. The production of mucus becomes increased and the lining of the small intestines is irritated as well. Later on, the bile becomes sticky and thick, blocking the paths of the pancreatic enzymes that should enter the small intestine. The gallbladder and the pancreas use the same bile duct. Digestive problems are very common when this duct is congested.

Overwhelmed liver

The fat-soluble toxins enter the blood flow since the toxins and bile overwhelm the liver. These toxins spend years in the fatty cells and eventually cause degeneration. They also reach the fatty tissues and the entire body. In the brain they convert into neurotoxins that cause different health issues and cognitive problems.

Burning fat is the same as burning toxins

According to Ayrveda burning fats is very important for the body as it eliminates the toxic fats. Good lifestyle habits and no stress allow the body to melt the fats. The ability of the body to detoxify itself and burn fats depends on the digestive system, bile and lymph flow.

Food allergies and not absorbing the good fats

Soy, dairy and wheat allergies are mostly caused by the body’s inability to absorb the good fats due to lymph and villi congestion. These food products cannot be digested and extra mucus is produced.

When in the intestines there is excess mucus and gluten remains not broken down, the intestinal wall becomes irritated and mucus production increases. Then the intestinal wall cannot function as a health barrier in the body.

The signs that your body cannot detoxify itself naturally are loose stool or constipation. The flow of bile is negatively affected and more toxins can accumulate in the body when you feel that some heavy meals cannot pass through your stomach. Luckily, these health problems can be solved with some simple methods.

For instance, Ayrveda medicine presents some simple practices to de-stagnate your liver and bile, cleanse your lymphatic system and protect the function and health of your intestinal wall. The known cleansing methods help to flush bile and boost the metabolism of fats. These cleansing methods give excellent results. They can help you eliminate toxins that are accumulated in the fat cells, the liver and the brain.
